Default tracking down original builders of scale engines

I am trying to identify the original builder of a 1/3 scale case traction engine.
The engine was not built from a casting kit . The only castings used are the cylinder, and the stack.
The only numbers i can find are on the right side of the smoke box ,( H60 C-fl )
the last owner Mr. moxon, Had passed on and the engine was purchased from his son Tom .
I Was told that the engine was shown in northern California and Oregon.
He also owned a couple of full size case 65 hP engines That where kept in northern California. I was told the welded boiler was built in western Canada.
That's pretty much what I know about the engine.
Any information about the owner or builder or even info about how to track down the numbers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the compliments guys...
Chris.. I don't know what the brass tube was for but, it is something different to identify this engine, as I have never seen anything like it on another engine.
However.... it does make a dandy steam powered golf ball launcher. .
This pic was taken 1/12/15 in California and is just how the engine looked the day it was shipped from Oregon to me in Florida.
Hopefully some one can identify the engine from the picture or have heard of or seen Mr moxon showing the engine in California or Oregon.

Well, with about 430 views on this thread, I was hoping to find out something about the engine or previous owners. So I'm bringing the thread back. Hopefully some one can identify the engine from the picture or some one remembers mister moxon from a steam or engine show.
Any and all information about the engine or previous owners would be greatly appreciated.
